3rd Grade Rocks!!


Happy Monday!!

Last week was a great week! Testing went really well on Thursday!! We did very well with concentrating and working our hardest during the first ELA Session of Testing. This week's testing is as follows:

Monday - ELA Session 2 (afternoon)

Tuesday - Math Session 1 (afternoon)

We have been discussing ways to prepare ourselves for the test. Students know they need to get plenty of sleep, eat a good breakfast/lunch, wear comfortable clothing, relax, focus and try their best. I am so proud of all my friends!! I know they are doing wonderfully!!!

Some Reminders:

Reading Counts "TWIN"kie Day

This Thursday I am hosting a "Twin"kie day for all students who reached 300 reading counts points and received a shirt!! We will be wearing our shirts and students will receive a TWINKIE from me to celebrate!! I will take points earned all the way up until Wednesday...even if that means they don't have a shirt yet!!

Keep reading and taking those quizzes!! I know it is the end of the year and it is easy to want to take a break, but we need to finish the year strong!!

Ms. Christy Bast

This is my fifth year teaching; my first year in Third Grade. I live in O'fallon, and I have a six-year old Boxer named Sophie. I love to read, write, and draw. I also like to go hiking, take Sophie to the dog park or on a walk, and I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.

Sophie and I are lucky to share our lives with Anabelle (8), William (6), and Charlotte (4) and their dad. We like to spend our family times exploring parks, swimming, watching movies, creating art projects, and attending lots of extracurricular events. Anabelle loves Cheer and is looking forward to joining the Sign Language club this year. William is a soccer star in the making. He is training to be a goalie!! Charlotte is our little dancer. She has some sassy little dance moves she loves to show off. All in all, we keep ourselves busy!!

I am pleased to be your child's teacher this year. Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
